EVENT: Ceridwen open day

If you don't already know about it, this weekend will be the last tipi viewing weekend of the season at Welsh wedding venue Ceridwen for couples planning to wed there in 2015 or 2016.


They tell us they only have a couple more spaces for appointments to view. There are no tipi dates left for 2015, but if you're looking at a small Welsh Green Wedding - 55 people or fewer, without the big tipi, they have a few dates left.

If you're planning to wed there in 2016 they still have dates for any size of wedding, but don't hesitate too long - it's a seriously popular eco-friendly wedding venue and gets booked up super quick!

Go along to get an idea how it would be if you hired the site for your natural green wedding.

What? Ceridwen Viewing Day
When? Saturday 20th September, 2014
Where? The Old Dairy and Tipi, Drefelin, SA44 5XE

SUPPLIER FOCUS: A girly weekend away with a wild and wonderful difference

Today we’re giving a HUGE shout out for the fabulous girls at Babes in the Woods, who make it their business to bring "Champagne camping with a touch of the wild” to adventurous brides who fancy something much more special for a hen party than just taking a cheap flight to get drunk in the sun!


Now, anyone with any sense would thinks that surviving a weekend with no showers, running water or electricity would be a girl’s worst nightmare but once you arrive at the Babes HQ all your fears will evaporate. The charmingly rustic camps are exclusively tucked away either in a secret pocket of beautiful Devon woodland or a magical spot on the Malvern Hills.


Sleeping quarters are furnished with comfy camp beds (on legs!) inside Californian bedroom domes and the dining area is a large pole built space with a tarpaulin roof in the middle of a clearing. Washing facilities are in another tent that contains an antique nightstand with mirror, china wash bowl and jugs of hot and cold water, while the composting toilet is a miracle of engineering!

SUPPLIER FOCUS: Green Wedding Boutique

Today I'd like to extend a super warm welcome to the lovely Rachel over at the Green Wedding Boutique!


Rachel tells me that she was inspired to set up her wedding planning and styling service, based in and around Bristol, after struggling to find creative, inspiring and environmentally friendly decorations for her own wedding in 2013.

As a graduate of Glasgow School of Art, with a trained eye for design and a passion for nature and flowers Rachel is well placed to create uniquely individual finishing touches for natural and eco friendly weddings and events. Her aquired skills in floristy, photography, web design, graphics, illustration and animation means she can offer couples a comprehensive creative wedding styling service.


Rachel tells me there's no set menu and she has no set prices for her services - everything is totally bespoke, but here are a few ideas of what she can do to take a load of the busy bride:

Ethical, natural and eco wedding inspiration and ideas consultation.
Styling consultation
Wedding planning - as little or as much as you like.
On the morning wedding styling
A personal shopping service.
Create wedding invitations printed with eco inks on recycled paper, or e-cards.
Wedding websites.
Floristry and floral styling using locally grown seasonal flowers.
Create hand made wedding decorations.


Take a look at the images and see for yourself.

Rachel also has an Etsy shop where she sells some of her imaginative creations.
